La Nuova Cappelletta is located on the Lake of Como, in the small village Vassena. The house is very bright, with a lovely flowery terrace and a spectacular view of lake and the beautiful mountains.

The space

La Nuova Cappelletta is located in the small and lovely village named Vassena, nearby the Lake of Como.
The house is a private estate, very bright and beautifully furnished. The attic has a wonderful terrace facing the lake and the marvelous mountain crown.
The courtyard leads to the entrance of the apartment, that is entirely private. The courtyard is spacious and blooming, intimate and refreshing during the warm summer days. A dining table is available for nice and relaxing meals during the warmer hours of the day.
In the hall of the apartment, below the staircase, there is space for the storage of cleaning tools and sport equipments. Eventually, 2 bikes can also fit in!
The apartment is an open-space studio very bright and spacious, arranged on 2 levels and furnished with care and taste, as a real Italian home :)
The living area has a bed-sofa for 2 people, a dining table, armchair, carpets and cushions. During the cooler periods you can use the fireplace and relax with some music, a good book and a glass of wine.
The kitchen is separate from the living area. It's very bright and colorful, has a window that overlooks the courtyard, is fully equipped with utensils, furniture and new domestic appliances (oven, refrigerator..).
The bathroom with window has a separate shower, toilet, sink and bidet.
Bed linen and towels are provided.
The stairs in the living-room lead to the wooden loft, where a single bed and a double bed are located.
The windows here are very special. They provide a lot of light to the apartment and most importantly, they offer a stunning view of the lake, the mountains and the red roofs of the village, as a natural painting of the Lake of Como.
On the shelves, you will find numerous books and a stereo for your music.
From the loft you have access to the wonderful flowered terrace, characterized by it's astonishing view. The terrace is great for morning breakfasts and romantic dinners by candlelight, and also for sunbathing and get a tan during summer afternoons. The potted aromatic herbs in the terrace can be used for cooking or drinks.This romantic terrace is ideal for those who want some privacy and quiet, by enjoying the special italian environment as well as the lake climate and the panorama.

Interaction with guests

I work in Milan and travel very much, therefore often I will not be there to welcome you in person. However, I am available (email and phone) for any advice you might need about what to visit and other infos and suggestions.
In case I am in the area, I will be very happy to meet you in person and give you further instructions!

Other things to note

The kayak is available to my guests. It;located in the courtyard, the puddle and lifejacket are stored below the staircase. For your safety, the use of the life jacket is mandatory. I recommend using the kayak from 11:00 to 14:00, and after 18:00, when the lake is calm. And if you wish to have your favorite soundtrack in your ipod, the experience will be an unforgettable show!

This place is just incredible! My girlfriend and I stayed in Michele's apartment for a week in September and it was one of our best experiences yet. The place is beautiful inside and out, clean, well stocked with essentials and charming. Michele is a great host and, although we didn't meet him this time, he left detailed instructions and tips, and was available to message or call at any time. We will definitely be back to stay here and would recommend this place to anyone! My only advice to people staying here is to prepare to use expensive taxis (€25-€35) home if you dine late out of town in Bellagio as the roads were a little too dangerous (narrow and busy) to be walking at night after a few glasses of wine and the buses don't run late. That's not Michele's fault though and, to reiterate, the place is amazing and we'll be back!

To sum it up in one word: Amazing! We had the most incredible stay at Michele's place and we recommend it 100% to any other traveler who wants to visit Lago di Como. The photos on here give you a vague idea of what the place will look like. But once you arrive and experience the first morning on the terrace you will immediately fall in love with the setting and the place itself. And once the cold night falls and you turn on the fire place you will experience the most romantic time imaginable (if you are with your partner ;D) and fall in love even more. The mountains framing the little village are very impressive and the scenery is simply stunning. If you don't believe us, go and have a look yourself ... it's 1000% worth it!

The apartment is lovely and Michele is an incredibly helpful and welcoming host! He left detailed instructions for everything we needed to know. Vasenna is only a short drive away from Bellagio, which is a pretty town and you can catch ferry’s from there to pretty much everywhere else on the lake! The roof terrace gave a beautiful view of the lake and area around it. Wonderful for drinking coffee in the morning or star gazing in the evening!

We've just returned from a wonderful week at Michele's house on Lake Como. It's a quirky, charming house which was easy to find and equipped with everything you need and more. Michele has clearly spent time on the small details which really make a difference. Vassena was less busy and has fewer tourists than other towns around the lake. This was perfect for us! We enjoyed retreating to the roof terrace for a glass of Prosecco after a day of sightseeing. The views from here are just beautiful. Michele is the perfect host-he obviously cares about his guests having the best stay. We very much hope to return.

This apartment is very comfortable and suits well for retreating. I was there with my girlfriend and we are fully in love with it and lake Como at all. Michale is very responsible and friendly host.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Michele is helpful and quick to respond. The apartment was quirky with large windows and great views and the roof terrace was wonderful - we spent so much time up there! It gets the sun and the shade so was great for sunbathing or cooling off. It is very close to the bus stop and ferry dock - just a couple of minutes walk to either with lots of options for days out and several small beaches on the lake within 5/10 minutes walk. The little shop down below was handy for water or bread etc. and we enjoyed excellent meals at the trattoria across the road and the pub at the campsite. We would highly recommend a stay!

Michele's place is lovely. We had 3 adults in our party which was perfect. Ferry stop is just down the street and market is right around the corner. The views are amazing! I highly recommend!

Ciao sono Michele e ho 37 anni,
Nella vita faccio l'ingegnere ma nel tempo libero mi molto piace fare sport, viaggiare con i miei amici e la mia fidanzata, e conoscere altre persone.
Penso che non ci sia cosa migliore che visitare un posto nuovo con i consigli di chi ci è cresciuto. Per questo motivo, ho pensato di preparare per i miei ospiti dei suggerimenti su cosa vedere, sulle passeggiate da fare al lago o in montagna, e sulle diverse attrazioni culturali, culinarie e sportive che questa zone del lago di Como può offrire :)
Spero che passerete dei giorni indimenticabili nella mia casa e la sua terrazzina, buon divertimento e buon relax!

Hey there! My name is Michele and I am 37 years old.
I am a civil engineer and in my free time I really enjoy sport, traveling with my friends and girlfriend, and meeting new people.
I believe that the best way to visit new places is to get some insights and suggestions from the local people. For this reason, I prepared for my guests some tips and insights about my favorite beaches, the hiking trails along the lake or in the mountains, cultural and outdoor activities in the Lake of Como , as well as my favorite restaurants in the surrounding area :)
I really hope you will experience great time and enjoy my house and the lovely terrace.
I wish you to have fun and relax!
